To avoid the hassle of doing laundry, designers introduced clothing made of soap, which proved problematic during thunderstorms or large-scale saliva fights. Keep your clothes clean the old-fashioned way with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $100 worth of laundry and dry-cleaning services from My Laundry Hamper.
The talented scrubbers at My Laundry Hamper transmogrify dirty duds into brightly shining garments with home pick up and delivery, a three-day turnaround time, and environmentally friendly processes. Customers create an individualized laundry profile, indicating detergent preference, washing temperature, and favorite folding style, such as rolled socks, hung slacks, or origami towels. After receiving laundry bags and instructions in the Welcome Kit (a $20 refundable deposit will be charged for the kit), chore dodgers choose between four different cleaning plans depending on their wardrobe-washing needs. Plan A provides twice-a-week service ($28.60/pick-up on average), plan B once-a-week service ($40/pick-up on average), plan C only as needed, and plan D offers a once-a-week, eco-friendly dry-cleaning-only option. Aside from the camaraderie of fine-smelling clothes, Team A and B members also get discounts on regular dry cleaning, which allows them to dryly de-dirty a shirt ($2.35 boxed; $2 hung), a pair of pants ($4.95), a dress ($9.50), and more.
For plans A, B, and C, a $20 minimum charge applies to all pick-ups, with a $10 minimum for plan D. After pound 17, which is the lucky number for launderers, a per-pound fee kicks in—$1.20 for A and B, $1.35 for C. Opportunities for free laundry arise at certain weights for plans A and B, whereas the cost of C depends solely on load largeness and blood type.
My Laundry Hamper
The expert textile technicians of My Laundry Hamper have lathered clothing with eco-friendly practices for more than 30 years, customizing washes to match guests' preferred detergents, drying temperatures, and folding techniques. After receiving a welcome kit with reusable laundry bags and stain-cleaning tips, patrons pick a laundry plan that works best around their routine and mud-wrestling schedule. My Laundry Hamper's drivers pick up soiled fabric from doorsteps and ferry it to the garment bathhouse, where suds fly and stains release their grip on threads. After one day, clothing returns to stoops, freshly folded or hung, gabbing on about all the friends it made and ghost stories it heard. In addition to washable fabrics, guests relinquish dry cleaning for the staff to spiff up with a gentle, nontoxic process.
My Laundry Hamper also displays social responsibility by streamlining donations for the Big Sisters of Rhode Island and being a proud supporter of the Women's Center of Rhode Island. Cleansers pick up the center's bed linens each week, taking care of the wash so that the staff can spend more quality time with the women and children under their roof.
